Jammie Thomas-Rasset, a Native American woman from Minnesota and a mom of four, was fined $1.5 MILLION (to be paid to Capitol Records) for illegally downloading and sharing 24 songs on the file-sharing network Kazaa.
Thomas-Rasset says she cannot pay the amount ordered, understandably. She has also said that she will have to file bankruptcy because of this. My argument is that $1.5 Million is an extremely excessive amount of money to fine someone for downloading music.
I'm sure many will agree that the charges are completely ridiculous and deserve to be discarded or greatly reduced.
We, the signers of this petition, call for the charges against Jammie Thomas-Rasset to be revoked or greatly reduced.
